I saw it earlier this morning with a bunch of friends (Thursday Night Showing). We got there early but not too early. So we got some pretty fucking terrible seats up front. Need to go see a chiropractor now.

Anyways, the movie was absolutely bad ass. An absolute must see. I can’t say if it beats Iron Man or not so I’m not going to bother deciding because BOTH are great fucking movies.

There is really nothing I hated about this movie that I can even thing of. Which is rare to see now a days I think nor was it too short. Though I can at least say that Batman’s Lair was not as cool as before. Too high tech maybe and the location? Maybe just me. Doesn’t matter.

The action and fight scenes were incredible. Well done. I don’t think the movie was too long either, I am sure others will think it is. But I thought not. There is no point where the movie drags alone leaving people to think they could of cut it out to make it shorter or anything like that. So go see and enjoy the movie. I actually enjoyed its length now because of it being such a great movie and I like longer movies as long as they are that.

To not spoil the movie here, don’t worry. Someone will be introduced. When that happened (near the end of the movie) I was surprised I was the only one in the theatre (no joke) to have released who it was and called it out. Not till a bit later after that scene, to those not familiar or that didn’t catch it, is his name revealed.

You can barely, BARELY tell that Heath Ledger in this movie is The Joker. You would never tell if you did not know going into it that he played him. His voice is so different and obviously he wears makeup. Hard to tell its him during the movie except maybe his hair but you could never if you didn’t know it was him.

I am disappointed though that we won’t get to see Heath Ledger as the Joker again or as an actor. I was never on the bandwagon for him to deserve an Oscar rather he played the part good or not. But I absolutely think after watching him play, that he deserves an Oscar after such a great performance. In my opinion, he kills the part over Jack Nicholson. I have not spoken to many people yet but some agreed he did too. Let it be known that Jack Nicholson was an awesome Joker and actor too. So for me to say that I truly thought he played better.

For those that do not know, Hancock is a movie. You can watch the trailer here.

The first half of this movie I really enjoyed. But the second half of this movie really sucks and goes downhill big time. The only way this movie could have a chance at being good is to have its script rewritten and even then you could never say it would be good.

Stop here if you would like not to read spoilers. You’ve been warned about spoilers. This movie has no villain what so ever unless you really want to call a bald guy with a hooked arm that Hancock recently put in jail a villain that is just a regular human being one. You could also say that Charlize Theron (Mary) would be a villain but she is more of a pissed off wife because 80 years ago Hancock forgot about her after being hit on the head in a fight and losing his memory. But even then, things are worked out anyways and I never thought it was much of anything.

This movie really has a lot of plot holes too. Points of the script are just written dumb as well, for example. You will find out that both of them “are married”, they are made in pairs (superpowers) but when they are together, they are basically normal people and lose their powers. The further away from each other, the more superpower they have. Now that being said, 80 years ago in Miami they were in an alley if I remember from the movie and some people beat him up pretty bad and hit him in the head or something similar, the ambulance would not let her ride with him and when she got there he was already awake and did not remember her at all. I guess they didn’t know of amnesia back then and she figured for whatever dumb reason, she would move on with her life as she does. Just dumb.

In the end though, it is up to you to decide if you want to go pay the money to see this movie. I say at least wait till it comes out to rent or another way that you watch movies because it is not worth the theater price to pay. I really wanted to like the movie, the beginning I had a blast, some people hated the beginning and the music and its jokes but I liked them and same with my friends so it is hit or miss. But I don’t think I have yet to come across anyone that enjoyed the second half of the movie.

So I saw The Incredible Hulk that just came out. It was pretty good, definitely better than The Hulk they made a few years ago and Edward Norton is just an outstanding actor. It was NOT better than Iron Man, then again I did NOT expect it to be because Iron Man is just so much cooler. The ending, is even better, I will not spoil it for you, but the ending scene I thought was extremely badass. You’ll see if you decide to watch it. Like I said, pretty good movie, they did a great job on it. I liked it and recommend seeing it.

So this movie stars Anton Yelchin as Charlie Bartlett along with Robert Downey Jr. playing the Principal and his hot and sexy daughter played by Kat Dennings. Great movie. The guy who plays Charlie, I’d love to see in more movies, I looked him on up IMDB, don’t recall any of the movies he has been in but he has been in more TV shows, never saw him in them either. Robert Downey Jr. plays great I think at least but then again, I like him as an actor, he was perfect for Iron Man and did great there too. Then you have Kat Dennings, with the few movies I’ve seen her in, she’s been outstanding and so sexy (The 40 Year Old Virgin).

Charlie ends up getting kicked out of another private school, this time for creating fake driver’s licenses. His mother decides to have him live at him and try going to a public school. He’s not a kid that fits in easily, so he decides to come up with a plan for everyone to like him and so forth the story goes on. I highly recommend watching this movie, I think most people will enjoy it. I had a lot of laughs in this one, it’s not solely based around a comedy but it is one along with drama. So get it and see it!

I highly recommend getting this movie when it comes out on DVD, which is July 29th. I enjoyed it a lot and I don’t normally ‘favoritize’ movies since I love a lot of them but this is one of them already. There are also very few movies in the say last 10 years that I normally never watch twice, this is one I see myself watching many more times when it’s released on DVD.

Just got back a little while ago seeing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

I enjoyed the movie a lot and thought it was awesome. I’d tell any Indiana Jones fan to go see this movie and anyone who has not seen this movie and is either not sure about it or whatever the reason be, see the first 3 Indiana Jones movie before hand. Why? Because I think you will enjoy it more having done that, even if you have seen just 1 of them, watch them in order. If you’ve seen them, a refresh would not hurt either if you have the time.

I’m not saying you will absolutely love the movie by doing either this, just think you might enjoy it more. It’s definitely not the best movie of the year either, Iron Man took that spot so far and there are a few movies up against that such as Batman Begins and maybe even Hancock? Who knows and whatever other movies there are that I am not mentioning that could be.

I went with 10 friends to see the movie. Their reactions were mixed but no one said it was terrible or bad like how bad Cloverfield was when most of us went and saw that. Some of us including me actually liked it.

The audience’s reaction to the movie (after the movie was over) was so-so. Not as great as I expected from the audience.
[spoiler]Which is most likely because of the the movie basically having just ended the movie with the alien’s flying off in the space ship. I say basically cause after that there is a scene between Indy and his son talking then Indy getting married finally.[/spoiler] Maybe 30-40% clapped, if that? It wasn’t a FULL theater but it wasn’t empty. I would say maybe 70% of the seats were taken. I didn’t hear anyone say anything bad about the movie as we were walking out. I don’t think people were thrilled about the aliens though for sure.

The action was great. You may find there to be more “bullshit” parts to the movie but again, it’s a movie. I am sure you would rather want to see some crazy cool scenes go on rather than something lame and typical, that’s just my take on it. Plus, the previous Indiana movie’s have done the same stuff anyways.

The comedy is still there and easily laughable as the previous Indiana Jones movies and I am sure still will be if you to watch it again just like the first 3 movies. There is even a few easter eggs, such as near the ending scene of Area 51 when they were driving through the warehouse of boxes.

[spoiler]After the movie, my friends seemed to have mixed thoughts on the movie, they thought it was good and action was great and everything else. But I think from gathering their thoughts together, the alien stuff was too much for them. I kind of have to agree with them too, it got really crazy. Now, I’m not saying throw out all the alien stuff, especially because the movie is about the Crystal Skulls but just got to be a little TOO MUCH.

Now having said that, lets go back to Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark. Remember the ending where the Nazis have and then open the Ark of the Covenant? What happened? Spirits came flying out and were flying all over the place then end up killing all the Nazis and something goes flying into the storm like sky then comes falling down into the chest.

It’s not only that, things happen in The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade as well. So it’s not like it wasn’t a good idea to have done what they did. Just maybe not SO MUCH alien could of been done. Plus they took the Crystal Skulls and made their own type of story with it. Not that there is any true story anyways or that I believe the world will end on December 21, 2012 when the Mayan calendar ends and such. (What I just said was not part of the movie, there was no talk of that in the movie just what is believed by people in real life today on collecting all 13 skulls, only a few have been found)

Either way, I don’t think it makes the film terrible though. I would like to see Steven Spielberg make a 5th installment. I don’t think Shia Labeouf should take lead role, he just can’t play that role yet that Harrison Ford has made great so far. It would have to have Harrison Ford again and teaching his son to be better and finish school, hah, among everything else. I’ll be there opening night to see it.[/spoiler]
